A Return to Bottling Whiskey in Pubs

Cooley Distillery, the independent Irish whiskey distillery, has partnered with The Palace Bar on Fleet Street, one of Dublin’s most famous pubs, to launch The Palace Bar 9 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey.

 

Owned by the Aherne family since 1946, the iconic Palace Bar used to bottle its own whiskey under the Palace Bar brand – this was a commonplace practice among Dublin pubs throughout the 1940, 50’s and 60’s. However, with the development of on-site distillery bottling this practice disappeared from Dublin in the 1970’s only to be now resurrected by Cooley and The Palace Bar.

 

Willie Aherne of The Palace Bar handpicked the new 9 year old single cask single malt. The whiskey is typical of Cooley single malts with its light fruity tones and distinct spicy wood flavour.

 

The bottles’ label depicts the exterior of the bar founded in 1823 and pays homage to its great literary past. Former patrons of the establishment include Flann O’Brien and Brendan Behan.

 

The Palace Bar’s Willie Aherne, comments: “We chose to partner with Cooley Distillery for this venture due to the consistent quality of their whiskey and multiple awards won by the distillery over the years.  As the only Irish distillery to be named World Distiller of the Year, we knew they would produce a special whiskey for us to resurrect The Palace Bar whiskey brand.”
